Totally Transport Draws the Crowds

The sixth annual Totally Transport event took place on New South Promenade on Sunday 27th June, with glorious sunny weather helping to bring the crowds into Blackpool for this now very well established transport event. Due to the tram track works between Starr Gate and the Pleasure Beach, the event was extended to include the length of Ocean Boulevard, thus bringing the trams back into the spectacle, and Blackpool Transport assisted by operating some additional trams of interest, including Bolton 66, Standard 147, Boats 602 and 604, Brush Car 632 and open top Balloon 706 'Princess Alice'. The event included an enhanced display of cars, buses and commercials (as well as 200 visiting minis!), and also featured displays, models and exhibits within the Solaris Centre, and a good mix of stalls on the garden to the rear.
